SNL Hits Back at Donald Trump in Final Debate Skit After He Called Their Parody a 'Hit Job'
The show took on the Republican presidential nominee in this weekend’s cold open, which focused on the third and final debate on Wednesday.
Naturally, universally beloved Tom Hanks (who was hosting this weekend’s episode) was tapped to play universally praised moderator Chris Wallace and Alec Baldwin and Kate MicKinnon returned to their roles as the presidential hopefuls.
After promising to be a “sweet little baby Trump,” Baldwin’s Trump quickly forgot himself while discussing reproductive rights, accusing doctors of “ripping babies out of women’s wombs.”
McKinnon’s overly confident Hillary Clinton responded with possibly the meanest dig at the nominee:
“What two better people are there to talk about women’s issues, me a woman who has had a child and has taken birth control and him, a man who is a child and whose face is birth control.”
The show also joked about Trump’s confusing answers about international relations and the situation with ISIS, even though he claimed that “all the heavy-hitters are supporting me.”
“I mean I’ve got the cream of the crop,” Trump said. “I’ve got Sarah Palin, I’ve got Chachi and get this I’ve even got the best Baldwin brother — Stephen Baldwin.”
SNL even took on Trump’s numerous claims that the election is “rigged” against him — although they didn’t address his complaints about the show:
“Every day I turn on the news and all of the newscasters are making me look so bad,” Trump said. “By taking all of the things I say and all of the things I do and putting them on TV.”
